Optimization of trophic support for neural stem cell grafts in sites of spinal cord injury

Previously we reported that neural stem cells (NSCs) embedded in fibrin matrices containing 9 growth factors and an anti-apoptotic agent, survived and completely filled sites of spinal cord injury. In the current study, we examine whether the number of factors … Continue reading
